Ultimately, the 2012-13 Houston Texans season will go down as a disappointment. An impressive 11-1 start gave way to a 1-3 finish, loss of home field advantage and second straight one win and out in the playoffs. Still, there were some bright spots for the team and some of the individual players thi ... More >>
After winning the BCS national title this season, Nick Saban was asked how long he is able to enjoy the taste of winning before moving onto the next season. Saban, in his typical understated, serial killer tone, said that he basically takes one day and then it's onto the next season.
Well, if you'r ... More >>
We know, we know. The last time these two teams met, the Patriots slaughtered the Texans along the same lines of what Alabama did to Notre Dame earlier this week.
That doesn't mean it will automatically happen again. Even in New England.
Want evidence? It doesn't take going back very far. In Decem ... More >>
Buck up there, Texans fans. I know all week all you've heard is how the Patriots are going to slaughter the Texans just like they did a few short weeks ago. And, yes, instead of facing the Patriots at Reliant Stadium after having had to go through the Broncos in Denver, is a pretty shitty deal. But, ... More >>
I've already explained why the Texans will beat the Patriots. So, how could I possibly explain then how the Patriots will beat the Texans. Let's just say while my rooting interests lie with the Texans, I am enough of a sports fan to see both sides. I certainly don't WANT the Patriots to win on Sunda ... More >>
In the grand scheme of things, none of us really wanted to be there at Reliant Stadium on Saturday. Yes, the NFL is awesome, and we love our Texans, and it was (cue hokey Clay Walker voice) football time in Hoooussston!! But up until the time Christian Ponder was scrambling around the Texans' defens ... More >>
It seems evident that Matt Schaub isn't going to win a shootout with the likes of Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. Perhaps not with Andrew Luck. But if the team's other components execute the way they're designed to, he shouldn't have to.
On Sunday, the Texans (12-2) finally returned to their core princ ... More >>
A week ago, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said he'd have trouble sleeping after his team struggled in the run game on both sides of the ball - a concerning trend that began in the preseason.
He should rest a lot easier this week.
The Texans (2-0) physically demolished Jacksonville (0-2) up front Sunday ... More >>
After years of trying to get people's respect, trying to force people to sit up and notice how smart I am, I finally figured out what the secret is. (And I'm so smart that I'm about to share this secret with all of you at no charge!)
The secret is this -- just describe whatever it is you do with th ... More >>
On Sunday morning at the Texans' second day of practice of the young preseason, I was hanging out with my co-host John Granato watching the wide receivers go one-on-one against the cornerbacks in pass catching drills when Evan Koch of the Texans media relations team walked by and asked us who we tho ...

Few things are sillier in sports analysis than "draft grades" given before players have taken their first steps onto a professional field.
Texan fans know this quite well, considering the abundance of Fs given to them by analysts in 2006 for having the gall to choose Mario Williams over the anointe ... More >>
